The Beyond Literacy Analytics Team will report periodically on site activity.
November 7, 2012.
As of November 7, 2012, www.BeyondLiteracy.com had 410 unique visitors. While we are missing some early data, the activity of the site shows a predictable pattern of heavy activity at launch that has recently decreased. One of the more interesting metrics show that the rate of social referrals has recently dropped to very low levels. The bibliography page enjoyed the longest visits at almost 9 minutes on average. The chapters attracting the longest visits were literacy-under-siege, about-reading, and reading-addiction at 3 minutes on average per page. The chapters with the shortest visits were characteristics-of-post-literacy, and information-overload at 1 minute per page on average.
